    Can anyone suggest on how I should remove the rust from this antique Marble Ideal Slag Knife. Also looking for any information on this knife. Thank you in advance for your help. The blade is 5 1/2” long. Total length 10”

    We need to see the knife to date it but also what kind of rust you're dealing with and what your goals are with the knife.
    If there's not a lot of rust I say fine steel wool and WD-40.

    0000 steel wool and mineral oil. Nothing coarser. No sand paper.--KV

    Welcome Larry. A pic would be very helpful for identification and to see how bad the blade has surface rust or if it is pitted. You can download (Imgur) then click and drag an image to upload to the BF. We love pictures.

    Ballistsol for a solvent with 0000 steel wool as an abrasive. The solvent will penetrate the rust and break it down better than mineral oil.
    You will not remove any pitting with this treatment, only remove the rust.
